WHILE North Devon has been busy dusting itself down after the St Jude storm, local photographer Guy Harrop has been out and about capturing the morning after the night before.

Guy left home at around 7.30am today (Monday) to check for storm damage but said the aftermath was not as bad as first predicted.

“The main problems in North Devon were fallen trees and localised flooding, although it definitely wasn’t as bad as everyone expected,” he said.

“There were not as many cars out and about so I think a lot of people had heeded the warning and stayed at home.

“It was still blustery about an hour-or-so ago but there were people windsurfing in the sea at Westward Ho!
